I decided to try my hand at chronicling my musical pursuits, travels, and culinary exploits in a blog! Here it goes:
Every Monday I start over my list of 7 things I want to accomplish before the end of the week. They are:
For my research I have two papers I've been working on for awhile. Both have some epic quotes:
"Wilma Neruda: Gender and Violin Performance in 19th Century England"
"The 18th-Century Germanic Viola Concerto: A History and Pedagogical Study of Four Selected Movements"
This week the husband and I went to Columbus, Ohio. First observations: the airport was a ghost town! We just went for a day, so we landed, ate breakfast at Sunny Street Café, drove around the city, saw the capitol, went on a short hike, ate a late lunch at an Ethiopian place, then hopped back on a plane and flew home! The hike was a definite pleasant surprise. Only 12 minutes from the airport, it was shockingly secluded.
What's to eat? SALSA!
We went to the farmer's market and loaded up on peppers (italian peppers, sweet banana peppers, poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, bell peppers, and shishito peppers), red onions, garlic, red and yellow tomatoes, and sweet corn. Added from the grocery store added lime juice and a generous swirl of honey.
I like my salsa mild. What I've learned with the peppers is that it's the seeds that are spicy, so I de-seed the peppers before chopping them up for the salsa.
For my bridal shower, my mom hosted a Pampered Chef party and I got oodles of gadgets that I LOVE! To chop all the veggies I used the manual food processor, to get the corn off the cob, I used the kernel cutter, for the garlic, I used the garlic press, and to juice the limes, I used the juicer.
